I would never include US Blues in any "worst of" list. A classic, catchy rock tune from the band's Golden Age. I can see where it might be letdown to hear it for the fifth time in three weeks if you were really jonesing for a Jerry ballad like Brokedown or Baby Blue, but I can think of TONS of songs I'd less rather hear in that slot: I Fought the Law, Baba O'Reiley, The Weight, Liberty, Johnny B. Goode, Heaven's Door, Lucy In the Sky, Tomorrow Never Knows...

The thing is if they were still playin, I would not mind hearing any of the above mentioned songs as an encore.

I'm not saying anyone would complain; I'm just trying to convey a sense of where I think U.S. Blues ranks in the "worst encore" discussion.

Wow, I'm really surprised Black Muddy River wasn't mentioned much.
